Fun & Interesting Facts

The two main parks in Perth – our launch site at the larger North Inch and the South Inch – were once islands on the River Tay.


Take to the skies for the experience of a lifetime with our stunning Scotland hot air balloon rides from beautiful Perth.

Go up, up and away from the picturesque and historic North Inch park and keep an our out for the many castles that surround the city as you drift over seemingly endless countryside.

Just a few to keep an eye out for include Balhouse Castle, Elcho Castle and Scone Palace, where Scottish kings were crowned in centuries gone by.

To the east lies the glorious Kinnoull Hill Woodland Park – the first official woodland part to open in Scotland back in 1991.

No other flying experience compares to the majestic wonder of a Scotland hot air balloon flight in our iconic red Virgin balloon.


The post code for the meeting point for our launch site is PH1 5HS. The launch site is in Perth itself, on the south part of the North Inch, along the River Tay.

Car parking is available along Rose Terrace, Bells Sports Centre (Hay Street, PH1 5HS) and multi-story car park off Kinnoull Street.

Please make yourself known and check in with the balloon crew. Your Perth hot air balloon pilot and crew will meet you in the field on the south side of the North Inch.
